America's Got Talent: Season 6, Episode 1 :: Los Angeles and Atlanta Auditions

May 31, 2011

Season 6 of America’s Got Talent kicked off with auditions in Los Angeles and Atlanta, where judge Sharon Osborne admitted they found the most talented group of people ever! Episode 1 aired on May 31, 2011!

Audition #1: Los Angeles

First, judges Sharon Osborne, Piers Morgan and Howie Mandel hit the city where stars are born - Los Angeles. The auditions began with a 50-year-old juggler named Frank, who used Howie’s head to balance himself on his super-tall unicycle. Being afraid of germs, Howie hates it when people touch him. Despite Howie’s anger and disgust, Sharron and Piers sent him to Las Vegas.

Next, we met 34-year-old Ryan Andreas, who was sent straight to Vegas after performing a beautiful version of In The Arms of an Angel while playing the piano. We also met Landon, an up-and-coming magician; as well as another juggler named Frank. Only instead of using Howie as an armrest, Frank juggled three 500,000-volt stun guns while standing in a tub of water! Yikes! One mistake and it could have been lights out for Frank.

Audition #2: Atlanta

Atlanta delivered tons of amazing talent, including the Miami All-Stars, a dance group of 24 members who stunned the judges with their swift and synchronized choreography.  We also met the Sh’Boss Boys, a 5-, 6- and 7-year-old trio who rapped about doing well in school.

There were, of course, some mishaps that caused one 50-year-old dancer to fall off the stage. Then came the husband and wife sword fighters who impressed Piers but not the other two judges.

Finally, a dance group called Illuminate wrapped up the show with something the judges having never seen before. A female dancer and software programmer designed a technology that played with lights on the dancers' costumes. The room was pitch-black during their audition, save for the fascinating combination of lights that were controlled by the creator off-stage. Here’s a clip of their performance to give you a better idea of what we’re talking about:

Honestly, anything works. Although, I really do like animal stories a little more than history stories. But, they are very educational, and they are fantastic too.
